Happy Friday. Happy September. Happy 3pm EDT.

It is Friday Video time! This week turned out to feature a few interesting creators of things, some of which happens to be robots. This was not planned.

» Adam’s Rib

Adam's Rib

This is a moving short documentary about a canoe builder from Gull Lake Boat Works who builds his canoes completely by hand. Really well done.

“This is a short documentary movie that shows the whole process of how the John Neeman tools are being hand crafted.”

Really amazing.

I for one welcome our Chinese noodle robot overlords…

I hope your Friday is yet another in a long line of excellent Fridays.

See you next week.
